Minnesota’s starting lineup will be much improved from last season after the addition of defensive-minded center, Rudy Gobert. Gobert is a multi-time defensive player of the year who will almost certainly turn the Timberwolves into a much better team on that end of the floor. Karl Anthony-Towns will consequently be moved to the power forward position, creating more opportunities for him to play on the perimeter and utilize his shooting ability. D’Angelo Russell and Anthony Edwards will once again make up the backcourt for the Timberwolves. Edwards improves with each day, so it will be interesting to see his advancements this season. Other notable players brought in were Austin Rivers and Kyle Anderson, who will provide substantial depth to a team that needs it. Find projected and confirmed Timberwolves starting lineups.
